standing up to a guy like john mccain showed the republican party is definitely ruled almost by its hardest right. the hardest right seems to scare everybody else out. i have yet to hear an elected official take on rush limbaugh ever on any issue. it's still the hard right that makes the noise. thank you. tom davis, not a member of the hard right. >>> up next, republicans have been trying to to make it harder for minorities to vote, and now the supreme court of the united states is considering whether a key part of the 1965 voting rights act should be struck down. that's section five. that's the one that makes every state check out any changes in its election law with the justice department. this is "hardball," the place for politics. postal service® works for thousands of home businesses. because at usps.com® you can pay, print and have your packages picked up for free. i can even drop off free boxes. i wear a lot of hats. well, technically i wear one. the u.s. postal service®, no business too small. hmm, we need a new game. ♪ that'll save the day. ♪ so will bounty select-a-size. it
